ASEAN Festival

Visited the 3rd ASEAN Festival held at Komba International House. Its a fair where they feature food and performances from various Asean countries (eg, Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam, Indonesia, Cambodia, Philippines... of course, Singapore too!).

Naturally, most pple who visited this event were Aseans themselves.. Its like a big get-together for your fellow countrymen. :)
Here's the Singapore booth: You can see fellow Singaporeans(dressed in the air stewardess' Kebaya costume) selling some food. That green "Uniquely Singapore" banner and the posters are provided by STB(singapore tourism board). At the left hand corner, there's also a cute stuffed-toy of the MERLION(singapore's mascot).

Here are some of our "local food"
MILO Dinosaur, Roti John, Kachang Putih and Green Bean soup.

A group of Malaysians, Thai and Singaporean:
While exchanging contacts, we took out our mobile phones. Guess what, all 6 of us happen to be using SOFTBANK mobile phones. There are 3 main telcos in Japan - Docomo, AU and Softbank. What are the odds of this happening???
Possible reason: SOFTBANK to SOFTBANK phonecalls are FREE during the daytime(depening on your plan).

Good marketing strategy!!

One thing I can't figure out: why are the phones in Japan almost all clamshell?
